Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera undetected by computer

I hook my camera to the computer, but the computer doesn't recognize it's there. I tried to reload the software, but the software was still there. I've tried several new cords, but it didn't help.

    When I connect the camera to the computer nothing happens, and I am told that there is no camera connected. I have tried different cords and different batteries, and memory cards.

    Same problem, in Windows XP. Fine in Windows 2000. Since it is said that there is no driver needed for XP, I don't know what to do.

Although I haven't had this issue with my S2 IS specifically, I have with 2 other digital cameras. The solution in both cases was to power the camera on BEFORE plugging in the USB cable.

In other words - Plug the computer end of the USB cable into the computer, do not plug the camera end in. Power up the camera in "picture view" mode, THEN plug the USB cable into the camera.

Not sure about Vista, but with XP, you should hear the familiar "Dong-ding" as the system recognizes the camera.

When I connect the cable to the USB port the computer no longer recognizes the camera connection.


You may have to reload software that came with camera. Or go on line and search for it. It is also possible that your USB port is bad. Try a different USB port on your computer.

Go to Olympus and reload software for that model. Often loading other rograms will corrupt software.

Some FireWire cameras do not play nice with other FW devices. Try unplugging the LaCie drive and any other FireWire device, then connect the camera directly to the Mac. iMovie should detect it then.
